I purchased this plant (twice!) from Santa Rosa Gardens (FL) in 2010. The plants had been recently transferred from pony pak size into 2". The roots had not grown beyond the original medium. Planted into my garden in moist, rich soil in part sun, they languished and gave up the ghost. It's possible the divisions were too small to make it outside a greenhouse environment.
